Cultivating leaders within the backbone and among partners is critical for the success of a collective impact effort. What can we learn from initiatives that have built leadership capacity within their backbone, their partnerships, and other community stakeholders?

Join us for this Collective Impact Forum Virtual Coffee, Building Leadership Capacity for Collective Impact. We're talking with Ellen Kahler, Executive Director at the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund (VSJF), about their experience helping strengthen leadership skills across their initiative. VSJF serves as the backbone for Vermont Farm to Plate (F2P), a statewide collective impact initiative to strengthen Vermont’s food system.

This virtual coffee conversation was held on July 17, 2018 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm ET.

Vermont Farm to Plate was one of 25 sites that participated in the research study When Collective Impact has an Impact. This new study, more than a year in the making, looks at the question of “To what extent and under what conditions does the collective impact approach contribute to systems and population changes?”
